Section 401 Water Quality Certification
On June 7, 2013 the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board received an application from the California Department of Transportation requesting Federal Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 401 Water Quality Certification for the Highway 1 San Pedro Creek Bridge Replacement and Creek Widening Project in the City of Pacifica, San Mateo County. The project will remove the existing Highway 1 bridge over San Pedro Creek and replace it with a longer and wider bridge which meets current structural standards. The bridge will be raised and the creek channel will be widened to increase hydraulic capacity. Refer to the 401 Application link below for additional information on the project. Please contact Derek Beauduy at 510-622-2348, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have questions or comments. Comments on the project and/or application must be submitted no later than July 10, 2013.

San Francisco Bay Regional Water Board staff is considering reissuing Waste Discharge Requirements and 401 Water Quality Certification to the US Army Corps of Engineers to continue periodic maintenance dredging of the federal navigational channels in San Francisco Bay. The Water Board is also acting as the CEQA lead agency for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for this activity. A Notice of Preparation was released for public review and comment on February 25, 2013, and a CEQA scoping meeting was held in Oakland on March 12, 2013. We expect the Draft EIR to be released for public review and comment by the fall of 2013. Elizabeth Christian, project manager, at (510) 622-2335.
